Day 75: Projectile Motion Visual

20140110_102500

 

Today I took another page from Kelly and used Dan Meyer’s Basketball Shot for a visual representation that a projectile exhibits constant velocity in the horizontal direction and constant acceleration (or at least acceleration) in the vertical direction. Interestingly enough, I had one student who said, “I really need to know if it goes in.” I told her to use math to find out.
